Debbie Fifield from Beach Within Reach receives the cheque from the group of local Freemasons

On the 24th August, Craft and Chapter Charity Stewards from Area 8, gathered on Broadstairs Beach to present a fantastic donation to this year’s local charity “Beach within Reach”. Area 8 covers the Freemasons’ lodges and chapters that meet in Birchington, Broadstairs, Margate, Ramsgate, Sandwich and Westgate.

Also present were the Provincial Grand Charity Stewards, Mark Bassant and John Gallagher and the Master of Trinity Lodge, Mike Salter and his wife Carol. Mike and Carol chose “Beach Within Reach” to be the beneficiary of funds raised by Trinity Lodge during Mike’s year. When combined with money raised by Mike and fellow Trinity Lodge member Dave Kirby, on their sponsored walk along the Great Wall of China, the total raised was £7,000.
